Are there any universities in the USA affilliated or accredited by the CIPD

Hi everyone,

My name is Dianne. I wish to undertake a Master of science in human resources and organisational development field from a university accredited by the CIPD. My challenge right now, however, is that i just got a new job for the next three years in the USA, still in the same field and i would like to work and study at the same time. I just cant seem to find one university or programme in the US that is accredited by the CIPD.

Does anyone know or have a clue of the possibility of studying an accredited Masters in HR in the US and not have to necessarily pick a UK based university?

thanks in advance.


  • Hi Dianne,

    Yes, I had the same issues as I am responsible for our offices in Texas. I joined SHRM online I found this site helpful. I know they do training too. They have forums too and provide templates / advice / blogs etc.
